As Mario Lemina, Juventus’ deadline day signing from Olympique Marseille, stands on the brink of a new adventure in Italy, the young midfielder has his eyes firmly fixed on success and reaching the top of his game.
Speaking to journalists gathered at Juventus Stadium this afternoon, Lemina believes that to achieve these goals, Juventus was the only logical choice.
He began: “Juventus are a massive club with a tradition of winning so when I heard of their interest my mind was already made up. This is a club that I’ve admired since I was young so I’m delighted to be here.”
Tall, strong, athletic and capable of operating in a variety of roles in midfield, Lemina was confident that his versatility and tactical experience, developed under the tutelage of “special” former Marseille boss Marcelo Bielsa, will make him an important player for the Old Lady.
